Trailers and Containers Explained
When researching shipping options, you'll probably hear about trailers and containers. We explain some of the various types used in shipping.
In shipping terms, a trailer usually refers to an unpowered vehicle that is towed by a powered vehicle. It is commonly used to transport of goods and items from one point to another.
A container is a truck trailer body that can be detached from the chassis for loading into a vessel, a rail car or stacked in a container depot. Containers may be 20 feet, 40 feet, 45 feet, 48 feet or 53 feet in length, 8'0" or 8'6" in width, and 8'6" or 9'6" in height.
